Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've lived in Acushnet, MA. since 1958. I'm a 2nd generation American on both sides of my family so it didn't take me very long to create memorials for my departed relatives in the local cemeteries.
My parents, David Pimental and Norma S. Pimental, maternal grandparents, Harry #39060089 and Bertha (Baumeister) Settele #39060089, plus maternal aunts and uncles, Louis H. Settele #39060184 and his wife, Kathleen “Kay” Higham #39060231 and Harry Settele Jr #39059970 and his wife, Mary Anna Josefek #39060037, are at Pine Grove Cemetery in New Bedford so I started adding to the entries there to aid others researching their genealogy and got hooked on photographing stones and adding to the data on FAG.

Since 2012 I've been concentrating on Rural Cemetery which is also the final resting place for my paternal grandparents, Manuel Dias Pimental Jr #41299437 and Valentina (Mello) Pimental #41294992, Grand-aunt and Godmother, Amelia “Millie” Monteiro #41294450, paternal great-grandparents, Manuel #41294221 and Rosa (Botelho) de Mello #41294307 and Grand-aunt Beatrice “Bea” Edwards #41294366.

I now do most of my entries using the new tool to upload & transcribe multiple photos.
I usually don't post my photos to memorials with existing headstone photos unless mine is truly a better shot (clearer, brighter, color-balanced or cropped so it can be read). Unfortunately, there isn't any indicator that a photo already exists when I'm transcribing and there is an existing memorial for that person, so it does happen sometimes. If I've done that to your memorial I'll be happy to remove my photo if you ask.

Please don't hesitate to ask for a transfer of any relative of yours that I've entered, no matter how distantly related. I'm related to only 40 of the memorials I've created and always like to see them in the care of family.

I don't mind when headstone photos I've posted here are used in family trees but I DO mind when users don't acknowledge that they've copied them from FAG so I've also been posting most of them to my FAG research tree under my Ancestry user name "trinka5364". I also post my photos to Ancestry when I find that I've photographed stones that are already have photos posted in FAG.

This should help users of both sites add them to their trees and at least when copied from the tree, the photo is attributed to me. It may be your relative but I'm the one who spent my day off walking through the cemetery taking pictures, and for some difficult stones I may have made a second trip to get a better shot, so please have the courtesy to give credit to the photographer when copying.

The flowers I leave on memorials are mostly shots I've taken of flowers in my garden or ones I took when visiting other gardens on vacation.

Find A Grave Memorial# 135175675
I came across this person Andrew Elwood Hathaway, he is my family tree and I notice that you have his death at 1961 but I do think that is correct when I done a Search I come up with 1931 which he was 84 when he died and on the grave site he would be 113 yrs. I am not trying to tell you your job, I am just letting you know that i am confused.

Thank You!
Thank you for the Francis & Amanda (Hathaway) Swift headstone photo! I was excited to see Amanda was buried there with him since the cemetery said "someone" was there, but they didn't know who it was since there was no name on the record.

William Sherman - New Bedford Rural Cemetery
Hi! Thanks for the edit suggestion. When I first created a memorial for William Russell Sherman in 2014, I could not locate information about his place of burial. I have moved his memorial ( to the correct cemetery and linked him to his parents. If you'll delete the duplicate memorial ( and add your photos of the marker to my memorial, that would be fantastic. Thanks so much for your help in finding William! ~Eliza
